The saw's spine is permanently moulded onto the back of the blade. It imparts just the right amount of weight to the blade to carry the saw effortlessly into the cut. The polished hardwood handle is shaped to fit the hand comfortably and not just to look pretty, which it also does. In fact the handle is very reminiscent of the rear tote on a bench plane and this theme is carried on in the steel rod and brass nut used to attach the handle onto the spine. A mortice and tenon joint between handle and back ensures a good solid and secure fixing between the two parts. The blade is Japanese high carbon steel, 230mm (9") long by 40mm (1.1/2") deep, with razor sharp teeth filed with a 14° rake angle, the overall weight is 360g (12.7oz).
